Description

The functions and objects described here make working with GTK+ and GIO more convenient.

GtkMountOperation is needed when mounting volumes: It is an implementation of GMountOperation that can be used with GIO functions for mounting volumes such as g_file_mount_enclosing_volume(), g_file_mount_mountable(), g_volume_mount(), g_mount_unmount_with_operation() and others.

When necessary, GtkMountOperation shows dialogs to ask for passwords, questions or show processes blocking unmount.

gtk_show_uri_on_window() is a convenient way to launch applications for URIs.

Another object that is worth mentioning in this context is GdkAppLaunchContext, which provides visual feedback when lauching applications.

Functions

gtk_mount_operation_new ()

GMountOperation *
gtk_mount_operation_new (GtkWindow *parent);

Creates a new GtkMountOperation

Parameters

parent

transient parent of the window, or NULL.

[allow-none]

Returns

a new GtkMountOperation

Since: 2.14


gtk_mount_operation_is_showing ()

gboolean
gtk_mount_operation_is_showing (GtkMountOperation *op);

Returns whether the GtkMountOperation is currently displaying a window.

Parameters

Returns

TRUE if op is currently displaying a window

Since: 2.14


gtk_mount_operation_set_parent ()

void
gtk_mount_operation_set_parent (GtkMountOperation *op,
                                GtkWindow *parent);

Sets the transient parent for windows shown by the GtkMountOperation.

Parameters

op

a GtkMountOperation

 

parent

transient parent of the window, or NULL.

[allow-none]

Since: 2.14


gtk_mount_operation_get_parent ()

GtkWindow *
gtk_mount_operation_get_parent (GtkMountOperation *op);

Gets the transient parent used by the GtkMountOperation

Parameters

Returns

the transient parent for windows shown by op .

[transfer none]

Since: 2.14


gtk_mount_operation_set_screen ()

void
gtk_mount_operation_set_screen (GtkMountOperation *op,
                                GdkScreen *screen);

Sets the screen to show windows of the GtkMountOperation on.

Parameters

op

a GtkMountOperation

 

screen

a GdkScreen

 

Since: 2.14


gtk_mount_operation_get_screen ()

GdkScreen *
gtk_mount_operation_get_screen (GtkMountOperation *op);

Gets the screen on which windows of the GtkMountOperation will be shown.

Parameters

Returns

the screen on which windows of op are shown.

[transfer none]

Since: 2.14


gtk_show_uri ()

gboolean
gtk_show_uri (GdkScreen *screen,
              const gchar *uri,
              guint32 timestamp,
              GError **error);

gtk_show_uri is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

A convenience function for launching the default application to show the uri. Like gtk_show_uri_on_window(), but takes a screen as transient parent instead of a window.

Note that this function is deprecated as it does not pass the necessary information for helpers to parent their dialog properly, when run from sandboxed applications for example.

Parameters

screen

screen to show the uri on or NULL for the default screen.

[allow-none]

uri

the uri to show

 

timestamp

a timestamp to prevent focus stealing

 

error

a GError that is returned in case of errors

 

Returns

TRUE on success, FALSE on error

Since: 2.14


gtk_show_uri_on_window ()

gboolean
gtk_show_uri_on_window (GtkWindow *parent,
                        const char *uri,
                        guint32 timestamp,
                        GError **error);

This is a convenience function for launching the default application to show the uri. The uri must be of a form understood by GIO (i.e. you need to install gvfs to get support for uri schemes such as http:// or ftp://, as only local files are handled by GIO itself). Typical examples are

  • file:///home/gnome/pict.jpg

  • http://www.gnome.org

  • mailto:me@gnome.org

Ideally the timestamp is taken from the event triggering the gtk_show_uri() call. If timestamp is not known you can take GDK_CURRENT_TIME.

This is the recommended call to be used as it passes information necessary for sandbox helpers to parent their dialogs properly.

Parameters

parent

parent window.

[allow-none]

uri

the uri to show

 

timestamp

a timestamp to prevent focus stealing

 

error

a GError that is returned in case of errors

 

Returns

TRUE on success, FALSE on error

Since: 3.22
